Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 November 2015
Status: inactive
Page Count: 6
scope:

The purpose of this specification is to provide a standardized method for preparation and verification of backing assemblies used in ballistic-resistant torso body armor testing and to reduce variability within and between laboratories.

The backing assembly is a clay block that contains ROMA Plastilina No. 1®2clay as the backing material. The clay serves as a witness material and provides a measurable indication of test item performance.

This specification is primarily directed toward test laboratories but may be applicable to body armor manufacturers, researchers, and end users performing ballisticresistance testing of body armor.

Units-The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to non-SI units that are provided for information only.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

2 U.S. Government standards require ROMA Plastilina No. 1®, from Sculpture House, Inc., as the backing material for ballistic-resistance testing.
